The Brotherhood Of Man - Poem by Denis Martindale

How few have asked and understood!
'Who needs a helping hand? '
I pray you'll help the brotherhood,
The Brotherhood of Man...

What use is wisdom without love
Or skills left on the shelf?
Lift up your hearts to God above
And live not for yourself...

Instead, move on! Leave your cocoon!
Ask 'How? ' instead of 'Why? '
Release the beauty and you'll soon
Become a butterfly!

Man's apathy increases strife!
Each man should do his best!
The good works that we do in life
Go in God's treasure chest!

Through our examples, others learn
And train as volunteers...
Then with God's people they'll discern
The purpose of their years...

Let's see if you have understood!
'Who needs a helping hand? '
I pray you'll help the brotherhood,
The Brotherhood of Man...
